Craig McDowell

"I am passionate about coaching others to discover their capability and capacity to develop, learn and grow."

Personable, challenging, professional

Craig is an experienced, passionate educator, leader and leadership consultant and have worked in many leadership positions in different schools throughout NZ including a new secondary school, and one in Canada.

He has also had the amazing experience of being the School Director of Outward Bound NZ and a Leadership and Management Advisor at the University of Canterbury. It was at UC that Craig reconnected with Chris and Peter, resulting in many good discussions and a collaborative presentation at a conference.

Craig also enjoys working outside the education sector. He has delivered Business Management courses, facilitated training with an ITO, a construction firm and a seafood company, and has followed his passion further by coaching senior leaders from a variety of sectors including Agriculture, Fire Service, Health, General Management and Not-for-profit organisations.

Craig loves the outdoors, sports, travel, just chilling out with his lovely wife Robyn, and when he can with his two adult children, Ben & Rose. The family dog, Gracie, often comes along for the ride.
